History

1994–1997

Game Show Network went live at 7:00 PM on December 1, 1994.[3] The first aired game show was Match Game '73. From 1994 until about 1997, the network aired pre-1972 classics as well as post-1972 game shows, most from the Mark GoodsonBill Todman library. The network aired game shows in a 24-hour cycle, and also used live interstitial programming to wrap around the shows. In the first few months, GSN's commercials consisted of public service announcements (PSAs), GSN promos and commercials related to Sony, the parent company of the network. Once the network became bigger, traditional commercials were added to the network as they gained new sponsors.

1997–1998
